Regular Phaser Cannons have a 180 degree firing arc, I have been able to chase down escorts with this set up so it works.

The maximum dps set up would be 3 Dual Beam Banks forward with Turrets Aft. you would have to use an RCS console to make the best use of that set up though, as it would only have the 90 degree forward firing arc.

ooh, you sir are correct. Fixed ^__^

I will look into the conn officers for a reduced cooldown, though the primary reason I carry too is for the damage buff...

My build is a little bit low on survivability, but on the other hand it pulls out a LOT of dps. I most escorts I see in STFs can't pull agro from me, and all i have for building thread is dps.

Right. Cannons vs Dual Beams.
Do'h

BTW, your BOffs:
CMDR Engineering: EPtW 1, EPtS 2, DEM 2, Aux to SIF 3
LT Engineering: EPtW 1, EPtS 2

Whats the point having 2 skills twice? If I remember correctly, having 2x EPtS2 didn't work because it acts as one skill with shared recharge timer. That's why I don't have 2x EPtS but Reverse Shield Polarity instead.

The Emergency power to X abilities are unique in that you can chain 4 together for 100% uptime, this enables me to have near max power in both weapons and shields all the time.

The way this works is this. Each power runs for 30 seconds, with a 45 second cooldown. However they only have a 15 second global cooldown, with a 30 second shared cooldown with it's copy.

The sequence goes like this. Activate eptw wait 15 seconds activate epts wait 15 seconds activate your other eptw, wait 15 seconds then activate your other epts. 15 seconds later your first eptw is ready to go again. ^__^

Just out of curiosity is it worth for pvp speccing this ship
with the Jem set and victory for life? Or is that a fail idea?

Honestly, I think that the jem hadar set only bring poloron weapons up to par. I felt a lot more sqishy while running the jemmie set. Part of that comes from running a very aggressive biuld. I will say I never once noticed the 4 piece set bonus, while I do often see the phaser proc in effect.

If you run a more defensive build it could be effective.

No, because only the JH Engines are worth it, the Deflector is 'meh' just like most deflectors and the shield is totally crap!

Add onto that, that Poloran is only good if your entire PvP team is running them.

You will still have the damage buff, 2 Purple (or more usable, 2 Blue) will bring the cooldown down by 12 seconds giving you your one copy a CD on 18secs (15 for global crew), with 1 Purple and 1 Blue with the 5% MACO 2pc set bonus, the cooldown is 15secs.

MACO XI
+8.8 Starship Driver Coil

+11 Flight Turn Rate
Thrusters: 25% speed when engines are disabled
While in Sector Space Flight Speed set to Warp 12

Borg
+5 Engine Power Setting
+12 Flight Speed
+11 Flight Turn Rate
While in Sector Space Flight Speed set to warp 14.

Well. Tough decision Although if the deflector is really that much better, I may try it as you recommended.

Edit:
"Sorry, I should have been clearer,"
Well, sorry, me too. I don't have the MACO deflector yet. I was so sure you knew
Ignor the engine stats, I cant look up the MACO Deflector as my work proxy is now blokcing the site, GRR, but from memory its:

16 Shield Emitters (improves healing)
24 Structual Integrity Field (inproves hull strenght)
16 Shield Systems (improves shield capacity)
8.8 Electro Plasma Systems (improves EPtX)
x Inertial Dampers (Improves knock resistance)
x Graviton Generators (Improves holds)
